Group Buy Feeler for BMWLogger Data Logging Software for MSS60 DME
I wasn't entirely sure where the best place was to post this. I figured since this section of the forum revolves around Engine and ECU Modification, this would be most fit. Moderators, if you feel this to be more appropriate else where, feel free to relocate.

Many of us are starting to explore different avenues in pulling out power from our cars. In my opinion, to maximize power and to measure safe gains, data logging is an integral part of the journey. Running our cars on the dynos seem to be a common trend these days, but as many know, it only shows a small part of the story. This led me to researching in ways of affordably logging data on the road and track.

Acquiring a means of logging data gives us the ability to see what are cars and DMEs are actually doing in real life conditions, not just simulation on dyno rollers in a very controlled environment. This information could even possibly be sent to different tuners for review in case of revamping one's tune or set of modifications.

I have looked over many different tools and often times, were way above my budget. Finally, I stumbled upon a very nice program, BMWLogger by **************. Priced at an incredible rate, when paired with a proper OBDII-USB cable, one can easily monitor and log data.

The software has notable features such as:
  • Read and Clear DME Fault Codes
  • Clear Adaptations
  • Real-Time Datalogging of different parameters (IAT, Ignition Advance, RPM, VANOS, etc)
  • Record, Save, and Load Data for Review
  • Export data to CSV
Here is a short tutorial video going over the interface of the software.


Here is the link to the ************** website:
http://**************.com/BMWLogger-2

After speaking with the software developer of BMWLogger, he offered a nice opportunity for the E9X M3 Community to join in on a Group Buy.

The software is already priced at a friendly $49. In addition, all you need is a compatible OBDII-USB Cable. If Group Buy commences, I will try to collate some good sources for compatible cables. Rest assured, if we can get a handful of individuals to commit, the price of the software will lower to cover some of the cost in investment in a cable.

Pricing Break Down Based Upon Committed Buyers
Original Price : $49
1 - 4 : $39
5 - 9 : $29
10 - 19 : $24
20+ : $19 - CURRENT PRICING

I've used this before for logging and it's pretty cool.

Pretty cool software. I just tested the demo version. Works with coding cable. I wish it gave availability to tune also. Wishful thinking

I've been asking the developer to add knock detection support. Would love to see it eventually offered.

I just added knock support for MS45. It's not really a stretch. Updates are free of course.

I recall you mentioning this software in the past! Great to see that it is used by well known tuners as well!

Cool indeed! The MSS54 is now just starting to be broken down by the general public for basic turning on/off functions and revealing maps. I imagine it to be A LONG while before the MSS60 even reaches such understanding by our general public community.

Great news!! Hopefully you're able to add a few features to the MSS60 as well.

What are your thoughts on logging AFR?

There's not enough room for every cylinder, so pick the most problematic when tuning.

We can try a few things. There's some items related to O2 that may or may not end up giving a good O2 reading. I can show O2 voltage or you can get an Innovate wideband which there's direct support for in the software. Without intimate knowledge of the stock sensor I can't convert the voltage yet.

Gotcha!

Thanks for clarifying!

No problem. Once one of you is registered we can play around with some data items to try to locate the correct one for AFR. Mike said he's super busy right now or I'd ask him.

I'm a noob when it comes to stuff, but I can try my best to collect some data for you. My work schedule is a bit goofy so it might be hard to get things in a timely manner.

It'll automatically collect it when you record, you just have to run different versions of the program for me. There's never a rush. It'll happen when I know we have good info.

Interested, but I need to find out how to get the demo version to even detect my coding cable, it always shows as having no cable detected (32-bit Windows 7).

If it's an FTDI based cable it will show up in the cable list in preferences, like the tutorial video shows. If you didn't find it in the list or even attempt to do so please check out the video on the website (Or in the first thread).

If you can use it for the BMW factory software and it's FTDI based it will. If you already have the cable, might as well try to see if it'll show up in the list. It's free to find out.


Thanks for the support so far guys!
